Since its debut in 1956, the Duo-Sonic has found its way into the hands of genre-defining artists, becoming an underground sensation that helped create alternative music in the dingy clubs of New York City. A surprisingly hip guitar with upgraded contemporary features, with a short-scale neck and downsized body, clear and jangly-sounding Duo-Sonic single-coil pickups, and Fender Player series attributes, this instrument features slick style and a unique sound that's perfectly at home in modern music. The unsung hero of the alternative underground, the Duo-Sonic is perfect for players who desire a unique sound and visual style.

Short-Scale Neck and Downsized Body
The Duo-Sonic HS's downsized body is comfortable for smaller players or those who enjoy energetic stage performances. Its 24" scale adds a bit of warmth and thickness to the guitar's inherent tone, while granting a slinkier playing feel, making it easier to perform multi-step bends. This modern neck is designed for comfort and performance, with a contemporary "C"-shaped profile (the shape of the neck in cross section), 9.5" fingerboard radius and medium jumbo frets. A gloss polyester finish protects the body while the neck bears a satin polyurethane finish for fast, easy playability.

Duo-Sonic Single-Coil Pickups
Almost infinitely flexible, the pair of Duo-Sonic single-coil pickups at the bridge and neck positions lends a unique character to everything from bright, jangly arpeggios to heavy chords. Clear and punchy-sounding thanks to their vintage-spec output, Duo-Sonic single-coil pickups add a unique character to the guitar's voice. Master volume and tone controls, along with a three-way pickup switch, shape the pickups' voice to match the music.

Fender Player Series Attributes
Every Player Series instrument is authentically Fender, from the headstock logo to the "F"-stamped neck plate. They have the sound, style and feel that made Fender the choice of many musical legends. The six-saddle string-through-body hardtail bridge increases sustain while the bent steel saddles add some zing to your tone, enhancing the upper harmonics to cut through a dense mix. Aesthetic appointments, including the knurled flat-top control knobs, cast/sealed tuning machines, and a three-ply pickguard, add a touch of classic Fender style to this updated design.
